IPPSLAND LAKE - AMAZING GLOWING LAKE :-

Gippsland lake in Victoria, Australia is well known for its blue glowing water that appears during the night.

The lake has unusually high concentration of NOCTILUCA SCINTILLANS, a light emitting micro-organism, which gives the water blue glow. This makes this body of water a beautiful and unique tourist attraction at night.

The chemical reaction which creates this blue glow is called "BIOLUMINESCENCE"

The River of Five Colors

In Colombia, Rio Cano Castales, or the ‘river of five colors’, is a special place where for a brief period of time every year when the conditions are just right, the river explodes with vibrant colours your eyes won’t believe. During the short span between the wet and dry season, when the water level is just right, a unique species of plant that lines the river floor called Macarenia clavigera turns a brilliant red. It is offset by splotches of yellow and green sand, blue water, and countless shades in between.

This is a "bio" bridge in The Netherlands that lets wildlife migrate and intermingle more freely, and keeps them more safely out of dangerous traffic. That nation has erected hundreds of such structures. Fascinating.

This is Mount Roraima in the Pacaraima Mountains. It lies on the border of three Countries; Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana. It is part of Venezuela’s Canaima National Park which is also home to the beautiful Angel Falls and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Mount Roraima’s flat surface is surrounded by 400 metre high sheer cliff faces andits highest point is is Maverick Rock at 2,810 meters.

Photos - From Around the WORLD - Page 8 580477_460117807382602_277114466_n

Im many photos and satellite imagery, Mount Roraima is surrounded or engulfed by clouds. This is because the area is surrounded by thick rainforest. Tropical heat causes the moisture from the rainforest to rise and condense over and around the mountain as heavy clouds. As a result, Mount Roraima is almost always in clouds and it rains nearly every day.
